Mia Lehrer + Associates is a full service, international landscape architecture practice located in Los Angeles, California. Under the leadership of Mia Lehrer the firm has been responsible for the design and development of a diverse range of public and private projects. The firm applies a comprehensive and intensely creative approach to all projects, which vary in scale from large urban projects that invest community members and stakeholders to intimate gardens where collaboration and coordination of architecture and site are the primary objective. We work closely with local communities and public agencies, to create parks and open spaces that meet the diverse needs of the people who will visit them. Our firm has been responsible for master planning and concept development for large and small parks that have been developed with funding from grants, infrastructure programs and public private partnerships. Our experienced staff, with seven licensed landscape architects, includes world class designers and senior technical staff who deliver comprehensive construction documents and provide comprehensive construction administration services.
Mia Lehrer + Associates is a recognized leader in the field of sustainable design and has been responsible for site design on LEED certified projects at all levels. We approach sustainable design as a tool to improve our environment and achieve higher and healthier levels of integration with natural systems. We are actively involved in community organizations that promote sustainable development and management practices. We incorporate sustainable strategies such as native and water conserving plantings, highly efficient irrigation systems, and various methods to achieve ground water recharge and stormwater quality improvements. We believe that all projects, whether large parks or urban courtyards deserve innovative design matched by intelligent, sustainable practices.
Our practice is based in Los Angeles and our focus has been on creating better urban environments. We do not begin any of our projects with a preconceived notion, but instead, at the onset, we ask questions of ourselves, our client, and our team, which will help guide us through the design and development process. The diverse nature of our clients and projects maintains our ambitious and comprehensive perspective, and no matter the scale or level of complexity, we remain committed to innovative design, quality service, the process of collaboration, and the belief that landscape has the power to enhance the livability of a city and heal the land.
